A Quick Public Service Announcement

Just because Target sees fit to replace their school supply display with Lady Gaga costumes does not mean it’s time to get out your Halloween decorations.* (I’m going to tell you a secret, Target doesn’t care about appropriate decorating guidelines, they just want to SELL YOU SOMETHING. It’s irresponsible and confusing I know) This especially applies to my neighbors, trust me when I tell you that no amount of light up Jack-o-lanterns on your front porch is going to distract anyone from the fact that it is 100 degrees outside. It is possible, however, that I may risk adding to my criminal record by vandalizing your yard. (I’m kidding I don’t have a criminal record….yet.)

It’s not even October for crying out loud. Put your pumpkins back in the garage for a couple of weeks.

Thank you. You may now return to your regularly scheduled weekend.

* Alyson is of course exempt from this rant because she lives in New England and truly carries the spirit of Jack Skellington in her heart all year long.

Hmmph. You're probably one of those people who don't like Christmas displays mid-October either. Shocking - simply shocking. :)

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Haha! Love that I made the exception list. Thank you! :) But, I promise, I have put out no outside decorations just yet. That doesn't happen for me until October. I've only put them up on the interior where I can let my true freak flag fly!

Fall decorations are one thing. Halloween decorations are a whole different thing. I'm with you.

Stopping by from MMB.

Seriously, what's up with holidays 2 months in advance?

Seriously? I don't think I've seen any hallowen stuff as of late...
but I don't get out much. ;)
